Online Rating Systems
Personally, I've always hated those on-line ratings systems (like the top 10 porn sites or whatever). Granted, it's a good place to find great porn. They are basically like the Grammys, people are rewarded for big breasts and not content (in a metaphorical sense of course). However, some people take them very (too) seriously. Take your old-fashioned Warez webmaster. He probably sits (or has a script to) and votes for his site every 5 seconds. Really folks, is it worth that much time and effort? Do you really want to let the world know you take yourself that seriously? Personally, I think only an idiot would put so much stock into something that is basically a contest of who has the most IP addresses. Still, it's nice when you're on top, no matter who can't resist the urge to stay ahead of you.
